The CARES act does exempt certain workgroups from immediate furloughs and other acts. Salaried management and other support staff are exempt work groups and can furlough those employees immediately and do not have to wait till the end of the CARES act.Jump to post
Now it looks like grocery stores could be next to close amid corona. Just on line order and curbside pick up will be available.

Was just reading a article that AA is currently burning through $100,000,000.00 a day. Even with the $12b from the government that would give AA roughly 150 days to survive before liquidation. So AA could be no more by end of September. Sad! Who else will liquidate. WN expects to stay profitable thr...Jump to post
I personally think the borders will remain closed as they are now for a minimum of another 12-18 months. Its not just Europe closed to USA visitors, its a two way street. In 18 months they will partially reopen, but significant restrictions will remain in place. If you are looking for life the way i...Jump to post
It does not make much difference, there is no way in the world anyone can beat Trump. Come November you will see the biggest landslide in the history of our nationJump to post
I am sure WN will remain profitable through this crisis. In their entire history they have never lost a penny, they will get through this, and with no layoffsJump to post
Just came across this article. Even after the government bailout, AA only has enough cash to survive for 4 months before it will collapse. Very sad. First major casualty of Corona! https://thepointsguy.com/news/us-airlines-cash-reserves-coronavirus/?fbclid=IwAR0CfV2KzBV3PPc9h6Z5ZvNPQH3EvM1zq6-YDi1Cr...Jump to post
My WAG is that DL and UA have not planned that far out. I would assume eventually they will see similar cuts. What really surprised me is AA is not even running at least 1 LAXLHR.Jump to post
AA Regional carrier Compass to shut down in April
https://thepointsguy.com/news/regional- ... es-flying/
I hope ALL airlines avoid a trip to bankruptcy court. But the hard truth is, if things don't turn around soon, every airline could be at risk. Load factors are dropping fast and no airline could survive with 50% load factors.Jump to post
This pretty much shuts down all trans-atlantic flying. Several months ago Parker said "American Airlines will never lose money again" Dont speak so fast!Jump to post
Just looking at future bookings plummet I dont think the cuts announced by US big 3 are enough. Just wondering how long until the layoffs start.Jump to post
American Airlines has begun to freeze and revoke miles of AAdvantage members for allegedly violating the rules of the program. Basically this has to do with credit card promotional offers. American Airlines sells miles to Citibank and Barclays card and those banks issue them as they see fit, they of...Jump to post
I am beginning to think the effects of this will be much worse than 9/11. Anyone who thinks airlines will get through this without massive layoffs and financial losses is in a dream land. I would expect bankruptcies for some of the US majors.Jump to post
Among them, I think AA's decision for Oasis is one example. Now the B738 will add 12 seats and take away AVOD PTV, how AA will compete with Delta (which is ADDING AVOD PTV in its fleet) in a weak demand environment? If AA did not decide to go with Oasis project, it could have saved at least $400 mi...Jump to post
AA share price looks positively north Korean at the moment. Of the US3, I could see AA in CH11 in the next few months. Given a 34 billion debt load they are in serious trouble and cannot manage a huge down turn in travel. haven’t they been turning massive profits ala Delta and United the last 2-3 y...Jump to post

Congrats! Im hoping to the car I bought (2017 Subaru Ouback 3.6R Limited) last summer off by the end of this year. Thanks to putting away cash (earmarked for flight school but thats not happening and a story for another day) to have a lower loan (~$14.6K and 4.5%) and aggressive payments on my behl...Jump to post
One would think if this extends well into the busy summer travel season, Europe will be hit hard, and the US travel could be as well. AA would be very vulnerable to losses and possible CH11 with over $34 billion in debt.Jump to post
The A320s and 321s on transcon flights were painfully uncomfortable--even in first class, the food was sad, the crews dismissive, and there was no entertainment. US Air should have been let go. It would have stabilized the industry much sooner had it been allowed to go into Ch 7. Now HP/US is destr...Jump to post
I would not be surprised to see layoffs in the industry the size of 9/11. Demand is already starting to plummet.Jump to post

I am sure eventually American will question the long-term efficacy of investing in a Seattle gateway heavily reliant on connecting traffic of another carrier to which it doesn't have any skin in the game (investment). Geography is in SEA’s favor for India. SEA is the closest major US city to BLR wh...Jump to post

Just wonder where the 789 will feed into SEA from? My guess would be DFW but you never know. I also wonder with the AA/AS tie up if we will see AA drop some routes and leave the flying to AS? AA has always struggle to make money on the west coast. Could AA drop routes such as SJC/SFO-LAX and leave t...Jump to post
Its really too bad the LAA failed and was taken over my HP. Thats essentially what happen. AA has been brought down to America West standards with profits thats match. I would not be surprised at all to see AA back in CH11 in the next few yearsJump to post
Anyway- to bring this thread back on topic, if anyone has any photos of the early 767 cabins for AA- I would really appreciate if you could share them! I found an image of the wide-body A300 cabin- This is most likely what the original 1983 767 cabin looked like as well. Too bad there is still no i...Jump to post
AA had Bucharest Romania on their short list for new destinations last year. Wonder if that will ever come up again?
Only in Romanian

I actually prefer a later arrival into Europe. I typically will fly LAX-:LHR-FRA, and arrive FRA in the early evening around 1800 or so. Go out for dinner, a few beers. Full night sleep then good to go the next day.Jump to post
I doubt they would. There is more to a max than different engines. The max has redesigned components like the tail cone, landing hear etc. By the time production is re-started/re-vamped the Max will have been back in the air for some time.Jump to post
The Oasis configuration is a big mistake by AA, it has lowered the experience to a Spirit level. No IFE, cramped hard seats.Jump to post
Has anyone stayed here? Looks pretty nice, but I would imagine pretty pricey to stay here.
Long term can be tough. I just got the boot from a gal in Europe, as the long time between visits was too much for her. It was not possible for her to come to me (school, work, pets), and I cant take a week off every 30 days like she wanted. So that was that. However, I did have some casual dates th...Jump to post

Didnt BA also cut way back on catering a few years ago? Charging for everything in the main cabin?Jump to post
Really depends on the levels of the parties in involved. If they are of the same level, one is not over the other in a management or supervisory role then its ok. But for those in a management or supervisory role to be in a relationship with a subordinate then no.Jump to post

I hope this is in the right forum.. But I hope there are some BA people here. Over the years I have built up over 150,000 BA Avios points.

I agree that Delta's economy class seats are much more comfortable than AA's. My back was starting to hurt after 30 minutes when I flew on an AA 737 MAX from MCO to MIA, but I've done ATL-SEA on refurbished Delta 757s with 30" pitch several times without any comfort issues.
